Police in Nova Scotia say a four-year-old died Sunday when she fell under a float in a Christmas parade, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation reports.
“A very tragic incident, very traumatic for everyone who was involved with the parade and at the scene,” Cpl. Dal Hutchinson, of the Nova Scotia RCMP, told the CBC. “My understanding is there were a lot of people nearby when this took place. So our thoughts right now are with this little girl’s family, as it’s a very difficult time, but also with the community, with people that were there watching the parade.”
The incident happened about an hour after the Yarmouth Christmas Parade of Lights began, the CBC reports.
